BREESE/CENTRALIA, IL — Kaskaskia College’s Welding Technology Professor Cory Wellen and Construction Operations Professor Pete Donnelly visited with the trades classes at Central Community High School in Breese in December. The visit included a donation of four (2 MIG/2 Stick) welders to CHS’ trades program.
Steve Ellis is the Welding Instructor at CHS. He says he initially approached Wellen about a need to get his students ready for future certification tests in their career field.
Ellis says CHS’ new welding program is a shining example of how positive outcomes come when collaboration happens.
